The kids LOVE drumsticks, and greek flavors, so we tried a new chicken recipe this weekend using just those things. I am not so good at following directions, so I like to make my own version. The skin was not crispy and crunchy, so the kids were not as thrilled with that, but they thought the flavor of the chicken was super yummy and the marinade was delicious (they ate it with a spoon from the bottom of the dish) too! I threw in a couple boneless skinless chicken breast for my dinner, but didn't put them in the oven until there was only 20 minutes left for the drumsticks to cook.
